2011 was a big year for Steve Martin and N.C.'s own Steep Canyon Rangers. Their latest release Rare Bird Alert was nominated for a GRAMMY® award for Best Bluegrass Album, and they were named Entertainer of the Year at the 2011 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards. The record peaked at Number 1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart. The Big Year - the new movie starring Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson - was released on October 14. In 2012, Steep Canyon Rangers promise the April 10 release of their own new album on Rounder Records, Nobody Knows You.
